There are days where I honestly feel like I’m losing my mind. A couple of weeks ago, after a full day of (unsuccessfully) searching for a house to rent, anxiety suddenly hit me really hard and I felt like the world was crashing down. And for no reason.
This tends to happen only when it relates to my personal life, not my work life, and I knew I had to calm down because nothing was actually wrong (and even if it was, no point stressing out about it), so I had the good sense to go to the gym for a long run – and it was like every step I took, the anxiety was leaving my body.
Since then I’ve made a point to exercise regularly so I don’t lose my mind. Do you have any coping mechanisms that work immediately to get rid of anxiety? Running has helped me keep a clear head while looking for houses for sure!
